The Reserve Club Chandon Cuvée Trio, a rare sparkling wine vertical that demonstrates, with remarkable clarity, the effects of sur lees aging over time. Chandon released the first of this Trio in 2008 and the third and final this past October. With the Trio now complete, invite your friends over and lead a side-by-side tasting illustrating the effects of sur lees aging.
First Release - 3 years sur lees:
Fruity, vibrant acidity and very refreshing. Aromas
include Fuji apple, pear custard and toasted brioche,
and light creaminess on the palate transitions to a finish
reminiscent of caramel and crème brulée.
Second Release - 4 years sur lees:
A toastier overall profile,with the first release's fruitiness having mellowed to more complex, nutty
tones. Features a notably full mouth feel and richer
impression on the palate.
Third Release - 5 years sur lees
The shining star of the group. Elegant aroma with
hints of buttery cashews, baked apple and white
peach cobbler is suffused with over-the-top creaminess throughout.
Includes an elegant 3 bottle gift box adorned with ribbon.
